Celtic Wheel of the Year
Sunday 24th April 10am – 5pm, Chopwell Woods, Rowlands Gill NE39 1LT
I am thrilled to have been invited by Living Woods North East to be a part of the InWoods team with a host of other amazing guides and facilitators.
Come and join us in the woods for a magical day of connection and exploration.
The Celtic Wheel offers an enlivening way of connecting more deeply with nature, with our ancestors, and with ourselves.
We will be gathering around the hearth of the sacred fire, creating medicinal art and going on drum guided journeys with our elemental allies.
Explore the wisdom and wonder of the Celtic deities as they find expression through our home planet’s seasonal rhythms.
Remembering you are an integral part of the natural world as we connect more deeply with the season of Spring and the season of change, invoking a greater sense of wonder and awe into your life and planting powerful seeds of intention.
Sharing ancient wisdom and evolutionary tools that can support your own sense of personal wellbeing and connection. These intuitive and practical coping strategies are invaluable for helping you centre and feel empowered at this pivotal and challenging time on earth right now.
Some seasonal refreshments will be provided however you are asked to please bring your own lunch, bottle of water and snacks.
I also recommend you bring a journal, pen/pencils and a blanket/s.
Dress for changing weather.
If you have a ground mat bring that too.
Beltain Celebrations at the Magic Roundhouse
Saturday 30th April, 10.30 – 5.30, Secret location in the woods, Bishop Auckland.
You are invited to come and celebrate Beltain at a magical and secret location in the woods…
This magical fire festival at the peak of spring is the perfect time to access the energy of fertility and abundance to align with your soul purpose and manifest your dreams.
We will be exploring how we can bring a greater sense of alignment and abundance into our every day lives and access the power of manifestation through connection to the seasons and our own inner bliss.
Working with our ancestors, the elementals and the spirits of time and place, we will gather around the fire, journey with the drum and connect with the natural flow of the universe.
This magical day, is a day for you to connect, relax, recalibrate and invoke a greater sense of wonder and gratitude in your life.
Learning how we can find our centre and our joy even in times of grief and despair.

Regenerating Earth – A Personal Response to Climate Change
Climate change is the big survival issue of our time. Increasingly, it seems that governments are not doing enough. This can evoke a whole host of emotions within us. So what can we do as individuals to respond to those feelings in a healthy way and what can we do to help regenerate the planet and counter climate change?
We will explore what we as individuals, families and local communities can do for our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our planet.
Rooted in the ethics of People Care, Earth Care and Fair Shares.
When children are campaigning for a planet for their future and the systems in place are not responding effectively, we need to explore grass roots responses to create change. Starting with ourselves, we can cultivate a happier and more sustainable way of living, that will bring powerful and positive changes to the world!
Recognising that we are all connected. When we can see beyond our own beliefs and practices to that which unites us, as well as celebrate that which makes us different, we become stronger together.
Please express your interest.
